We stayed in an apartment that made us feel residents of Siena. And the reception of Cristina and her family made us feel even more at home. The location is great for those who will spend a few days in the city and use it as a base for visiting other towns in Tuscany because it is located outside the center, with easy access to roads and also has free parking. To go to the center, you have bus at the door and in 10 minutes you reach the Duomo. Because it is an apartment, do not have breakfast included, but there is a very close supermarket where we can buy everything for breakfast and even for dinner. Large rooms, comfortable beds, kitchen with everything you could need, great bathroom with shower and bathtub. Anyway, I would live here :)

We spent 10 days here... how amazing. The apartment was beautifully furnished, impeccably clean, light and spacious and, equipped with top quality accessories. Very easy to get to town on the bus which stops at the door. Set in beautiful gardens with fantastic views. Most of all, the friendly family service and assistance with anything and everything was outstanding. We were sad to leave these wonderful people.
Bravo, mille grazie Ceasare, Marina, Cristina, and Claudio

Our stay in Siena was excellent in every way and very good value for money. We stayed in the apartment Foriporto which was a one bed apartment towards the back facing the beautiful gardens. We had a large room with dining table and settee, well equipped kitchen, separate bedroom, bathroom and launderette all to ourselves. Cristina, Claudio and their Mum were amazing throughout our stay.
Cristina helped us to organise two tours by booking on the phone and helped us with the language. She in fact saved us money by negotiating a better price for our Vespa tour in the Chianti countryside! That was an incredible experience!
We walked into Siena several times and also took the bus which was very easy. We felt totally safe walking around at night and parked our hire car outside the city walls easily in one of the blue bays when we wanted to stay out late past bus hours!
There are two supermarkets a few mins down the road for all your shopping needs. Once you have familiarised yourself with the roads it was easy to get on to the road to San Gimignano and the Chianti region by taking the Firenze/ Florence road.
Villa il Borghetto is a family business and we felt very warmly welcomed. A thousand thanks to Cristina, Claudio and your Mum and Dad for making our honeymoon trip to Siena such a wonderful experience.
We will be back!

Sienna Villa il Borghetto
A special place to explore Sienna and environments
It is a family run business in a recently fully renovated villa. Dad looks after the magnificent gardens, mother looks after the cleanliness of the villa and the son and daughter looks after your daily needs. We were welcomed by Claudio who even carried our suitcases into our rooms. He was most welcoming and gave us all the information about the apartment as well as the transport to the city. He was helpful in every aspect. On a Sunday evening, he even drove us to the supermarket as buses were running less frequently at that time.
We occupied a one bed room apartment with a modern fully equipped kitchen, a large bathroom, a comfortable lounge room with a TV and a three seater couch and with a large roof top terrace overlooking the verdant olive and grape plantations of the Toscana landscape. We enjoyed the quiet evenings sipping local wines and admiring the brilliant sunsets bathing the landscape in a fiery golden hue.
The villa is about a 5 minute bus ride from the centre of the old town. The bus stop is across the road. A fully stocked large Penny supermarket also is a short bus ride away.
The in-room Wi-Fi is free and is the fasted we have experienced in Italy.
Laundry facilities are available. Onsite parking was a bonus.
Thank you to Claudio and family for making us feel at home at Villa il Borghetta.
